After several months of planning, the operators of the LIC Flea & Food market will be opening their beer garden for the first time this weekend.

Attendees will be able to buy wine and beer at the market for the rest of the season—which is expected to continue through the end of the year.

The market will be selling artisanal beer brewed by the local breweries—which include SingleCut Beersmiths, Queens Brewery, Finback Brewery and Rockaway Brewing Company. The owners of many of the breweries will be in attendance to discuss their product.

To mark the grand opening of the garden, the LICFlea will be serving $2 beer between 4:30pm and 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

The beer garden is likely to be large. The owners of the LIC Flea told the community board in April that they planned on opening a garden that would be comprised of 92 seats– taking up to 1/4 of the 24,000 square foot parking lot that is used for the market.

The operators could not be reached to confirm whether they were still the plans.

The LIC Flea & Food is best known for hosting dozens of vendors each weekend who offer food, jewelry, fashion, art and crafts, antiques, collectibles and more.

It is located on an empty lot at the corner of Fifth Street and 46th Avenue, just one block behind the Pepsi-Cola sign.
